Terms provided in this glossary are an alphabetical compilation of definitions from the "Health Disaster Management Guidelines for Evaluation and Research in the Utstein-Style'"
The terms in his glossary "are provided to facilitate communication on the scientific, technical, and policy issues of earthquakes, seismic zonation, earthquake risk assessment, and earthquake risk management. Because earthquakes are linked with the hazard, built, and policy environments of a community, the terms are organized in these three categories."
Also, some terms may have multiple definitions (for example, "Disaster" as defined by Hays as well as "Disaster" as defined by the Health Disaster Management template).
